Results posted for the third week of the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) Survey show an interesting turn in the race for the NSSE Champion Cup. While the Schulich School of Business continues to hold a strong lead, the Faculty of Science and Glendon College are starting to pull away from other faculties. The official standings for the third week show that the Schulich School of Business is in first place, the Faculty of Science in second place with Glendon in third place and the Faculty of Environmental Studies in fourth place.
From Feb. 10 to March 31, thousands of first- and fourth-year York University students are taking part in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), or “Nessie”. Through NSSE, they’ll be able to contribute their insight and have input into York University’s future direction.
To add an element of fun to the survey and to encourage participation in the survey, NSSE organizers at York University challenged the individual Faculties (except the Faculty of Education and Osgoode Hall Law School) to compete for the NSSE Champion Cup.
The Faculty with the highest participation rate will win the NSSE Champion Cup and bragging rights until the next survey.
The online survey, which takes about 15 minutes to complete, allows students in their first and final years of a four-year degree to offer their insight into what York University does well and what it could improve. It will be used to determine how much time and effort students put into educationally rewarding activities and to what degree York University facilitates this involvement.
Updates on the progress of the survey and the NSSE Champion Cup will be published every week in YFile.
